This scientist talked about ‘diversity’ so he is now being censored by ‘schools’ that only teach Maoist dogma, not ‘science’ of any sort, namely, MIT. Massachusetts is a ‘liberal’ state which means it hates diversity of opinions. There is no ‘equity’ of opinion or political positions. Zero ‘inclusion’ of all people of all ideologies. Schools are Maoist training camps. This brave professor, Dorian Abbot, wants to take politics out of schools. Au contraire! We need MORE politics, that is, fighting off communist infiltrators is going to be an epic political battle in all our schools!
The insane leftists who hate science and reality have been going after Professor Abbot for quite a while:
Prof. Dorian Abbot is a renowned geophysics professor at the University of Chicago. He was slated to give the prestigious Carlson Lecture for 2021 at MIT. Then the woke mob, who doesn’t like Prof. Abbot’s views on DEI, descended and his lecture was canceled. I recap Prof. Abbot’s story so far, and add my own thoughts. As a climate scientist, I find the actions of the MIT department who invited Prof. Abbot to be absolutely shameful.

I am amazed there is still some open-minded professors at Berkeley, CA, but do note he is leaving due to the censorship insanity in academia these days:
The ‘global warming’ scam continues while hiding under the ‘climate change’ rubric. We are supposed to think that if only we all stopped using CO2 producing products, the earth will get colder. BRRR. This is false but people tend to forget what BRRR means. I remember our darling winters even in Tucson, AZ, during the BRRR years was so cold, I sewed up several old lady’s fur coats I got second-hand so I could be warm at night in winter. It was cold for Tucson back then.
Climate changes can take very wild swings and has done this to an astonishing degree for the last 3 million years. As we watch various volcanoes across the earth spewing massive amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere, we should remember this is PLANT FOOD and growing things that change CO2 to O2 are the center of all life on earth. We need both CO2 and Os and this present warm cycle has greened the earth greatly.
But in certain areas and Kenya is one, the oceanic/atmospheric 20 year cycle from cold to hot climate/el Nino/la Nina business means they have cyclic, COMMON droughts and regular, rainy monsoons alternating.
Here is a typical headline about this obvious cycle from mainstream Bilderberg gangster news media outfits:
Kenya has had droughts off and on for the last…THREE MILLION YEARS. The time periods with everything green and wet coincide with Ice Ages. Then, the Sahara isn’t a desert at all. It rains in these regions while much of Europe is locked deep in ice. Same with North America: in all Ice Ages, half of the continent is locked under a mile of ice while Alaska and Arizona, for example, have had herds of elephants grazing.
Kenya is very dry off and on during every interglacial. This is the #1 reason homo sapiens, that evolved there, moved out at the very beginning of the last Interglacial. Eventually, they reached Europe and killed off most of the Neanderthals who lived right next to the glacial sheets of ice in Europe.
Instead of culling herds, a man’s ‘wealth’ was counted in the number of cattle he ‘owned’ as a member of a clan. Instead of selling off or killing and then consuming cows when droughts inevitably happen, they continue to hoard the number of cows (this is how they ‘buy’ multiple wives) until these drop dead. Normally, they sell their cows to other herders who wish to increase their own herds for status and power.
In a panic when a drought happens, everyone tries to sell but no one is expanding herds! So the value drops.
Historically, the Maasai depended on their cattle to provide all of their primary needs: food, clothing, and shelter. Their traditional diet relies heavily on milk and dairy products, lean beef, cattle fat, and blood…Cattle serve as the key currency in traditional Maasai society, in place of money. Cattle are sold and bartered in many kinds of exchanges involving goods and services.
Because cows=wealth, the more the merrier. This leads to overgrazing and during droughts, not enough food for the animals.
Families seek to build up large herds to show their wealth and importance.
When I was a child, I saw this with my own eyes in Arizona and Mexico during droughts in the years before LBJ changed everything via giving welfare money to everyone. Back in the 1950’s, when there was a drought, the natives would not kill and use their cattle quickly, they clung to them because they represented value and the by products like milk were valuable.
In medieval Europe, cows were used like in modern third world countries to plow and provide milk and for leather products. I used to have an ox team so I am very familiar with farming with cows! Cows were mobile ‘banks’ for ancient societies.
Cattle are almost always part of a young woman’s marriage price, delivered by the groom to the bride’s family. Men may take more than one wife if they own enough cattle. A community will offer one or more cattle as a gift to a young warrior who exhibits exceptional bravery. Payment in cattle may also be demanded as a fine for dishonorable or criminal behavior.
With a growing population in Africa thanks to VACCINATIONS so the majority of children no longer die of diseases and adults now live longer than 30 years average, we see overpopulation which leads to more land usage stresses.
Liberals think these common droughts in East Africa are caused by CO2 and not by climate cycles that have been ongoing for the last three million years. This infantile view of world climate conditions is now required by our schools and our evil rulers who want to eliminate most humans in order to ‘save the earth’ but dare not say openly what their true goal is: death of at least 2 to 3 BILLION people.
